Zombie Love Story

According to Variety Twilight producers Summit Entertainment has picked up the film rights to a zombie novel called Warm Bodies. But it's not your ordinary zombie tale. This is a zombie love story.

Warm Bodies is based on a book by Isaac Marion who originally self-published the novel and sold it through his web site before the publishing rights were picked up by a publishing company. Iy features a self-aware and none-too-jolly zombie who strikes up a relationship with the ex-girlfriend of one of his victims. Well, that's a new take on necrophilia.

Jonathan Levine is set to write and direct – he's previously best known for The Wackness and helmed All the Boys Love Mandy Lane (and when we say best known, we are, of course, talking relatively).
